Senior representatives from Italy, Norway, Bermuda and Ireland have confirmed to speak at the Global Government Fintech Lab 2024, which will be held in Dublin on Thursday 25 April.

Global Government Fintech
’s one-day event will include keynote speeches, panel sessions, fireside chats and plenty of opportunities for international networking, reflecting our spirit of knowledge-sharing across borders.

Taking place for the third time – and the second time in Ireland’s capital, which also hosted the Global Government Fintech Lab 2023 – the Lab is designed for departments, authorities and agencies looking to capitalise on the possibilities of technology to transform their operations and the services they deliver.

Alessandro Moricca, chief executive of Italy’s PagoPA – a company wholly-owned by the state, through the Ministry of Economy and Finance, that operates a platform for e-payments to the European Union (EU) member state’s public administration – will be making his Lab debut.

Three further newly confirmed speakers will be making their second Lab appearances, having all spoken at our 2023 event. They are: Kristin Tornling, head of section for digitalisation and innovation at Norway’s Financial Supervisory Authority (Finanstilsynet); Moad Fahmi, senior adviser – supervision (financial technology) at the Bermuda Monetary Authority; and Denise Delaney, head of the policy and risk horizontal function at the Central Bank of Ireland.

Free to attend for public sector

Free to attend for those working in the public sector, session titles include ‘Governments and the future of finance’, ‘Public sector financial innovation through payments technology’, ‘Fighting financial fraud with technology’ and ‘Financial regulators and innovative technology: on the right path?’.

Global Government Fintech has already confirmed the following 2024 Lab speakers: Dominik Freudenthalerfintech expert in Austria’s Federal Ministry of Finance; Sofie Østerkjærhuus Jensen, head of company supervision at the Danish Business Authority; Dina Buse, deputy director of the financial market policy department at Latvia’s Ministry of Finance; and Parma Bains, a financial sector expert in the IMF’s monetary and capital markets department.

The Lab is being organised in partnership with Ireland’s Department of Finance, which created a fintech steering group almost three years ago. The EU member state has a whole-of-government strategy to promote the development of international financial services while the Central Bank of Ireland is currently running a consultation on ‘innovation engagement’ as it seeks ‘deeper engagement’ with fintech initiatives – a move it has described as ‘necessary to our public policy aims’.

The inaugural Global Government Fintech Lab was held in Estonia’s capital city Tallinn in June 2022. This event was organised in partnership with the Estonian government.

Global Government Fintech launched almost three-and-a-half years ago as a dedicated sister publication to Global Government Forum.
